22kg Albacore

Rocky Carosi and Sarina with a 22kg albacore caught today, Tuesday 22 July, on Pulfers Reef of Scamander. Several others were caught and southern bluefin tuna as well.
Awesome gamefishing still off the east coast - at the end of July. Rocky reckons it is the best fishing of the year - and look at the weather.

It has long been the feeling of a number of Tasmania’s top anglers that good numbers of broadbill swordfish (xiphias gladius) are off our magical shores. The incidental by-catch from recreational long liners and a few captures on electric reels has suggested as such. 

Striped Marlin
